“These appointments reflect the strength and depth of HSBC’s executive team in the UAE and the deep experience that both Abdulfattah and Mohamed have in supporting clients to expand internationally.

He succeeds Samir Assaf, who will remain a Non-Executive Director of the HBME Board and also Non-Executive Chairman of the Board of HSBC Middle East Holdings BV, the holding company of HBME.

Mohamed is a career HSBC banker whose wide experience since joining the bank in the UAE in 2002 spans retail, commercial, corporate and investment banking, encompassing roles that have seen him lead coverage of some of HSBC’s most important client relationships in the country, most recently as Head of Global Banking, UAE.

The appointments directly support HSBC Group’s strategic plan to extend its ambitions and accelerate its growth in the region.
